Active Engagement Continues, Parents and Teachers Begin Standing Up Against Virginia School Boards

Parents across the nation are beginning to recognize just how infected local school boards have become with the advancement of Critical Race Theory (CRT).  More and more parents and students are uniting to push back against the politicization of schools by ideologues within the school administration.

In Loudon County Virginia the school board is confronted by concerned parents.  One teacher from Fairfax County traveled to support the parents in Loudon County and sends a message of support to parents and students.   It is great to see a teacher confront the machine…

We need more teachers like her…  GREAT JOB !

If the education fractures or cleaves between Red States (Freedom, Patriotism) and Blue States (Indoctrination, Sheep), we will likely see an even greater intellectual diminishment amid the Democrat orthodoxy which is dependent on communal thought.

One example of the parent’s message:

New York Times Editorial Board Member Mara Gay Says She Was Forced to Witness American Flags on Memorial Day and That is Very Disturbing

This soundbite from MSNBC personifies the moonbattery currently infecting American discourse.  New York Times editorial board member, Mara Gay, shares her experience driving to Long Island, New York, on Memorial Day and how disturbed she was witnessing American flags.

Ms. Gay states the implied message by anyone displaying an American flag is: “this is my country”, and she finds that “alarmingly disturbing.”

According to the New York Times outlook, it is unthinkable to contemplate that people would show patriotism -actual, real life patriotism- by flying American flags and associating themselves with America as their country.  The entire concept is just horrific.  WATCH:

No good communist ideologue would ever want to be exposed to American flags that represent concepts like “Liberty”, “Independence”, or heaven forbid “Freedom”.   Ms. Gay was exposed to authentic American patriotism, the equivalent of garlic to a vampire; and be warned…  she is committed to doubling her efforts to isolate, marginalize and ridicule anyone who dare fly Old Glory…

Fly or embrace the American Flag as representative of your pride in America, your nation, and the New York Times will call you racist.

Face Book 32% of Global Population


Armstrong Economics Blog/BigTech Re-Posted May 7, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

There is a massive campaign unfolding against Facebook. The biggest and most stupid mistake they made was to take sides in politics by banning and canceling anyone with who they disagree. Besides all of that, Facebook has invaded people’s privacy like no other platform. They track everything you do and sell that info to the highest bidder. The number of active users of Facebook (those people who have logged onto the site in the previous month) has reached a historic high of  2.45 billion. To put this in some context, approximately 32% of the global population now uses the social media platform, and the trend line of participation is still going up. About 63% of American adults are on Facebook and 65% of the youth.

Back in 2004, when a 19-year-old Zuckerberg had just started building Facebook, he sent his Harvard friends a series of instant messages in which he marveled at the fact that 4,000 people had volunteered their personal information to his nascent social network. “People just submitted it … I don’t know why … They ‘trust me’ … dumb fucks.

In 2019, Facebook was ordered to create new layers of oversight for its collection and handling of users’ data by the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC detailed a privacy settlement with the social network. Still, the FTC buckled to the lobbying power of Facebook. The F.T.C.’s commissioners approved the restrictions in a 3-to-2 vote but drew very sharp criticism for not going far enough. The FTC utterly failed to curb the data collection of the world’s largest social media company. Republican and Democratic lawmakers even said that the settlement was a drop in the bucket for Facebook, The FTC failed to limit a core practice that has repeatedly raised privacy questions, and since they have ventured into manipulating elections precisely as the Russians were accused of back in 2016. The people simply being victims of this cancel culture is growing exponentially.

So just how stupid are people? It seems to be very stupid. Back in 2018, the Observer revealed how Cambridge Analytica, a company funded by conservative billionaire Robert Mercer, acquired and exploited the data associated with 50 million Facebook profiles. It appears that while Facebook had been aware of what the Observer described as “unprecedented data harvesting” for two years, it did not notify the affected users.

Lebwrong, Shut Up And Dribble

When a policeman yells, “Stop, or I’ll shoot!,” it’s usually wise to do as he says. Similarly, if a knife-wielding teenage girl is chasing down another girl with a large knife and the intended victim is calling for help, it’s predictable procedure for the officer to yell at the perpetrator to get down on the ground. This was the case for 16 year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.  She refused to get down and was shot and killed. If the police officer had stood by and allowed her to stab her victim, the officer would be called racist for doing nothing.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t

I don’t like police officers who are abusive, racist, overly-aggressive, militarized, or otherwise violating the Constitution, but people need to realize that they need to obey a cop’s orders in real time. If there is an injustice, it can be sorted out later by lawyers. These days, many don’t seem to understand this. They simply ignore the cops or resist in some way. In the case of police officer Chauvin, he followed police procedure with the resisting counterfeiter and convicted criminal George Floyd, who most likely died due to heart problems and an overdose of Fentanyl.

Like the OJ trial, mob rule took over in the murder trial of Chauvin. Political correctness and fear of what the mob might do has trumped justice. Instead of law and order we have no law and disorder. The mob is now in charge and that mob consists not only of protestors—peaceful or otherwise, but also politicians, Hollywood, and the mass media. They decide through force of opinion the fate of the accused.

Joining the mob is Lebron James, a sports figure. He tweeted out a very threatening message, “You’re next” along with a photo of the police officer who shot the teenager. The tweet was quickly removed. We at GrrrGraphics were banned from Twitter for the crime of being conservative. We never threatened anyone, but since James is ‘woke’ and supports communist China, he gets a break.

Threatening the life of a police officer should be a slam dunk reason to be banned from Twitter. It’s also another reason not to watch the NBA, or any other politicized sport.

Update: Ratings for NBA Finals were down 49%, Get Woke Go Broke…

President Trump Responds to LeBron James “He May Be A Good Basketball Player, But”…

President Donald Trump responds to the racist accusations against the U.S.A. by NBA player LeBron James:

Ma’Kiyah Bryant Neighbor Releases Home Security Footage, Says Officer “had no choice but to shoot the black 16-year-old because more people could have been killed if he hadn’t acted”


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 22, 2021 | Sundance | 222 Comments

The police officer who responded to 16-year-old Ma’Kiyah Bryant’s stabbing rampage was an expert marksman with military training.  His quick reaction likely saved the life of another young woman who was milliseconds away from being stabbed by the out of control teenager.

His response to the incident should not be controversial given all of the facts as they developed in a few seconds upon his arrival.  A neighbor’s CCTV security footage shows another angle of the shooting.

Daily Mail – Neighbor Donavon Brinson “told Fox News Thursday morning he believes Bryant could have fatally stabbed the young woman she was seen lunging at with a knife if the cop hadn’t opened fire in Columbus, Ohio, Tuesday afternoon.

‘He could have either not fired and the young lady in pink could have been stabbed in the neck and brutally or fatally injured and then he could shot [Bryant] and we could have had two [young women] dead – or he could have responded in the way that he did and one young lady lost her life,’ he said.” (link)

News reports show the responding officer is a US Air National Guardsman who received an expert marksman badge with an M4 Carbine.

.

Unfortunately the entire event continues to be politicized by those who are attempting to divide the nation based on racial grievances.  However, there is little doubt amid the mind of the majority that the police officer acted according to his training to save the life of another black woman.  It is only from the perspective of the toxic left and their allied media that some other instantaneous action should have been taken.

Racial antagonist LeBron James, a basketball player for the NBA who thinks very highly of himself, attempted to threaten the police officer then retracted the tweet after backlash from the majority voice.

37 Percent of Polled American Respondents Are Buying Less Coca-Cola Products

Rasmussen has a poll released today highlighting the corporate risks involved in entering politics.  Coca-Cola now discovering the cost of corporate wokeism as 37% of respondents say they are buying less product during boycott.

Thirty-three percent (33%) of Black adults say they are less likely to buy Coca-Cola because of the company’s involvement in the Georgia election law controversy, as are  35% of White adults and 44% of other non-white adults. As noted by the National Pulse:

[…] Respondents were asked several questions, including, “Is it a good idea or a bad idea for corporations to become involved in political controversies?”

Overall, 62 percent of respondents said that it was a “bad idea,” with only 20 percent saying it was a “good idea,” and 17 percent saying they were “Not sure.”  When asked if they had ever boycotted a company over “political issues,” 52 percent of those polled said “No,” while 41 percent replied “Yes.”

The third and last question on the survey asked: “After the Georgia legislature enacted a new election law requiring voter ID, Coca-Cola was one of the companies that publicly condemned the law. Does that make you more or less likely to purchase Coca-Cola products?”

Over a third of the respondents – 37 percent – said that they were “Less likely” to purchase Coca-Cola products due to the company’s interference. (more)

Perhaps one of the more telling statistics is that 45% of those aged 40 to 64 are boycotting Coke’s corporate wokeism.  This demographic is a key group with the majority of consumer spending power during the peak of their income earning.  Losing 45% of the U.S. market audience is a massive hit, even for a global (multinational) corporation.

Interesting, Coca-Cola Removes Chief In-House Legal Counsel to Consulting Position

Get Woke, Go Broke…

Keep up the boycott of all Coca-Cola products.

Obviously the massive multinational corporation cannot admit they made a mistake lest they get attacked by the extremists on the far-left; however, all of Coca-Cola’s recent moves since they stupidly put their company into the toxic political mess surrounding election reform legislation -particularly in GA- indicates the company is experiencing destabilizing impacts from the MAGA boycott.  DO NOT RELENT !

(Bloomberg Legal) The Coca-Cola Co. announced Wednesday that it is moving legal chief Bradley Gayton to a “strategic consultant” role less than a year after he joined the company and promoting in-house lawyer Monica Howard Douglas to general counsel.

Gayton, who joined Coca-Cola on Sept. 1 and recently announced ambitious new diversity requirements for the company’s outside lawyers, will immediately become a strategic consultant to Coca-Cola chairman and CEO James Quincey.

[…]  Coca-Cola spokesman Scott Leith, when asked about the impetus for its general counsel change or whether Gayton’s strategic consulting role is a permanent or temporary position, said the company would have no additional comment. (read more)

It is almost impossible to boycott all of the multinational corporations that are attempting to influence U.S. politics.  However, if we focus like a laser on two or three: Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola and Major League Baseball, we can send a massive message that will hit the boardrooms of all others.

Take Coke down a few pegs…. and the rest will fall in line.
